Lakesman Triathlons

Postponed to June 20th 2021

Please see the announcement on Facebook

With the current global situation changing on an hourly basis and the risks posed by COVID 19, we at Lakesman HQ have taken the incredibly difficult decision to postpone the 2020 races until the 20th June 2021.

As you are aware we always strive to make our decisions based on the importance of our athletes, fantastic core team and volunteers.

With a little over three months to go we feel that making this decision early should hopefully give you all the chance to rearrange plans, and also not worry about being unable to train or race ahead of June.

As you can imagine planning for this years race has been ongoing for over twelve months, and as you know we rely on many local contractors and business to deliver the Lakesman weekend. With such unprecedented times and with many challenges ahead we wanted to give them confirmation of this postponement and our commitment to delivering a successful race in 2021 as soon as possible.

As a result of this anyone who is currently entered and paid in full will be transferred directly into next year's race.

Thank you everyone for the messages and emails we have received supporting us over the last few days and weeks. Rest assured we are gutted to make this call but have done so with heart and mind aligned to protect all of you,
The Lakesman Family.

You can expect further info via email from us in the coming days.

We would like to end with what is the most important message to say. We hope you, your families, friends and colleagues stay safe, healthy and stick together in what is likely to be a challenge few months for us all.

Training Plan

Matt Bottrill Performance Coaching, in conjunction with The Lakesman, have developed a Training Plan designed to get you prepared for racing the epic Lakesman Triathlon. The plan will work for either the middle of full distance and focusses on the technical aspects of each discipline as they know how important that is over the distances. Given the individualised pacing and technical focus of the sessions, the plan will work for a wide range of ability levels. All the content is delivered as one package without subsequent feedback. The plan costs £180 and you can add it to your order during the entry process.
